Benefits of Rose Water
Posted by Kat Stein on January 25, 2018
How much do you know about the ingredients in your skin care products? Are they made with all natural ingredients, or do they contain preservatives and harmful chemicals? Rose water is an all natural, incredibly versatile, time tested skincare ingredient; its’ use dates back to before the establishment of the Roman Empire! Rose water offers numerous benefits to our skin, and combined with different ingredients, it is useful for any skin type.
Rose water is commonly used to soothe skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, and sunburn. It contains cooling and anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe uncomfortable irritation and aggravation, and contains nutrients to help accelerate the healing process. Because it is such a mild ingredient, rose water suits even the most sensitive skin.
Hydrates, tones, and refreshes
Maintaining a consistent skincare regiment (cleansing, toning, moisturizing) is extremely important for the health of your skin. Toning is a key factor in keeping skin happy; it helps remove excess dirt and oil that may be left over from cleansing, and prepares the skin for your moisturizer. A spritz of rose water (or our Rose Water toner) settles into your pores and gently hydrates, and constantly keeping your skin hydrated has wonderful long-term effects such as improving out skin texture and a fewer breakouts. The application of rose water can also help reduce skin puffiness, especially around the eyes, making it a wonderful ingredient to use in the morning.
Aging skin is accelerated by many things including too much sun exposure, pollution, stress, and harsh chemicals. The anti-oxidants contained in rose water help to neutralize and tackle these factors and keep your skin healthy and hydrated, reducing wrinkles and other signs of aging. For the maximum anti-aging benefits of rose water, we recommend our Rose Face Treats package.
The PH levels of your skin are generally between 4.5 and 6.2, which means it is slightly acidic. The use of soaps and chemical laden cleansers can strip your skin of its natural oils, which then disrupts the PH balance of your skin and can lead to the growth of acne causing bacteria. Rose water has a PH level of 5.5 which helps balance out your skin, discourages the growth of bacteria, and helps prevent future breakouts.
We hope you can experience the benefits of rose water for yourself and use it to feel clean and beautiful. Don’t forget to cleanse, tone, and moisturize every day to keep maintain happy, healthy skin!
